Man Utd handed injury boost ahead of Aston Villa clash

Alejandro Garnacho news

Garnacho returns to full Man Utd training

Manchester United have been handed an injury boost with Alejandro Garnacho back in full training before the Aston Villa game.

The 18-year-old has been on the sidelines for the past six weeks with an ankle injury but he is now expected to make his comeback.

He was back in individual training last week and Erik ten Hag has now confirmed that he will be involved with the team.

The news will come as a huge boost for the Red Devils who need more firepower in their attack for the rest of the season.

In Garnacho's absence, they have lacked a game changer off the bench. United should benefit from the youngster's return to the squad.

The Argentine has played just 1000 minutes of first-team football so far but he has impressed with four goals and five assists.

He recently signed a new long-term contract with the club and this should benefit him to play with more freedom going forward.
